A vegetarian Chinese restaurant serving beef, chicken, pork and shrimp dishes all made from flour, potatoes and other meat replacements, along with typical vegetable dishes.
If you can get past the garish strips of red lights when you enter, you'll find there is some undeniably cool food to be had here. Although more than a little over-the-top in design and concept, it's fun through and through, serving small plates and sushi, along with the usual slew of melted-Popsicle-flavored martinis and well-chosen sakes.
Stationed downtown in Rio Bravo's ex-location, Ray's in the City typically attracts business and convention types. Ray's has a substantial variety oceanic options ranging from horseradish-crusted grouper to oyster bar and sushi offerings. Ray's won't give your wallet a workout, though some of the dishes lack that taste bud-kicking zing. That being said the raw bar rocks and the service is spectacular.
